~The gift at the end of the journey~



GOTCHA DAY!!! We took Bella from the childrens home today , to be with us forever. She has a forever family now. We are so happy about this, and we can't wait to have her meet her brothers and sisters, and all of her family waiting at home for her. Hopefully onlt two more days and we can get on the plane home. They have had changes in the passport paperwork, it is taking 48 hours to get passports now. You have to go to the police station for picture and finger prints of the child and do paperwork, then wait 48 hours. They used to get the passports in one hour.So we are praying the passport will be done early, maybe tomorrow afternoon. Latest thursday morning before her medical appt: at 9:15A.M. Then it will be off to the US Embassy for a 2:00P.M. appt: then we will wait there for her visa. Then we should be done and be able to head to the airport at 4:00A.M. Friday morning to head back to the USA....
We have had a very nice time here, it is very beautiful. Jasmina may not drive , but she sure can walk your legs off of you. Thank you Jasmina for all you have done for us and Bella also. We hope you feel better soon.

How can I tell you how relieved I am that Bella (Magda) has her forever family?! How I prayed and worried about that beautiful little girl. How I prayed if we were to be her family, but not having peace about it. Then to find out that YOU were to be her forever family! What a happy day that was! What a happier day today is! Seeing her with her Mommy and Daddy, waiting to go home to her siblings. I'm crying tears of relief and joy and praising God for His goodness! I know you will all be blessed. Enjoy your time there and have a safe journey home.
